Dozens Shot Over Memorial Day Weekend As The Collapse Of Chicago Accelerates

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on StumbleUponEmail this to someone

Gang Violence - Public DomainChaos and violence threaten to spiral out of control in America’s third largest city, and nobody seems to have any idea how to solve the problem.  After decades of control by the radical left, many parts of the “Windy City” have become rotting, decaying, gang-infested hellholes.  Just like Detroit, the city of Chicago is rapidly becoming a joke to the rest of the world, but a horribly corrupt political culture likely stands in the way of any type of major reform any time soon.  And just like much of the rest of the nation, a spirit of violence and civil unrest is rising in Chicago.  So far this year, the number of shootings in Chicago is up 50 percent compared to the same time period last year, and that was before we even got to Memorial Day weekend.  As of Sunday morning, at least 40 people had already been shot, and authorities were bracing for even more violence as the holiday weekend stretched on…

A string of nearly two dozen shootings on the West Side has pushed the number of people shot during the Memorial Day weekend to at least 40, with two more days to go.

As of early Sunday morning, the toll stood at four dead and 36 wounded across the city, including a 15-year-girl shot to death as she rode in a Jeep on Lake Shore Drive near Fullerton Avenue, police said.

The cries to fix what is wrong with Chicago are becoming increasingly desperate, but at this point the city is drowning in debt and is pretty much flat broke.

So the options for doing anything about this growing crisis are quite limited.

But that isn’t stopping prominent city leaders from speaking out.  According to the New York Times, Rev. Corey Brooks believes that “we could be looking at a blood bath” this summer if nothing changes…

“If something doesn’t change, if we don’t get jobs for these kids, if we don’t change the economic situation, I’m worried that we could be looking at a blood bath,” said the Rev. Corey Brooks, a pastor on the city’s South Side, a mostly African-American area where some of the shootings have been concentrated. “If something doesn’t happen, I fear that we’re potentially looking at one of the worst summers we’ve ever had.”

As of Friday morning, homicides in Chicago were up 52 percent in 2016, compared with the same period a year ago, and shootings had increased by 50 percent, though the pace of violence had slowed in recent weeks, the police said.

I believe that Rev. Brooks is correct, but he isn’t identifying the core of the problem.

Thanks in large part to unchecked illegal immigration, gang membership has been surging in Chicago.  Back in 2012, the Chicago Crime Commission estimated that there were 150,000 gang members living in the city, but of course by now that number is likely far higher.

No city in the United States has a higher population of gang members than Chicago does, and hundreds of factions are constantly battling for turf.  The police in Chicago insist that they have the situation under control, but everyone can see that they do not.

And how could they?  There are only 13,318 law enforcement officers of all types in the city of Chicago.  They are outnumbered by the gangs by much more than a 10 to 1 margin.  There is no way in the world that they are ever going to be able to stop the gang violence.  All they can do is hope to contain it.

Sadly, they are fighting a losing battle, because with each passing month thousands more gang members cross our southern border illegally and head directly for our major cities where they are warmly received by their gang brothers.

Perhaps this helps to explain why 3,000 millionaires left the city of Chicago last year.

Do you want to know somewhere else that has been controlled by the radical left for decades and that is now seeing chaos and violence spin out of control?

In Venezuela, we get to see what it looks like when an entire country starts to shut down.  The following comes from the New York Times

The courts? Closed most days. The bureau to start a business? Same thing. The public defender’s office? That’s been converted into a food bank for government employees.

Step by step, Venezuela has been shutting down.

This country has long been accustomed to painful shortages, even of basic foods. But Venezuela keeps drifting further into uncharted territory.

At this point, more than 80 percent of all basic consumer products are in short supply, and some people have become so desperate that they are actually hunting cats and dogs for food.  My wife and I had a lot more to say about the rapidly deteriorating situation down in Venezuela during a recent episode of our new television show.  It is so important to watch what is going on down there right now, because eventually the same things will be happening here in America too.

When society breaks down, people become very desperate, and crime spirals out of control.  The mafia and the gangs are having a field day at the moment, and the police are so overwhelmed that they can’t do much to stop them.

And if you need medical treatment down in Venezuela right now, you might as well forget it

The Luis Razetti Hospital in the portal city of Barcelona looks like a war zone.

Patients can be seen balancing themselves on half-broken beds with days-old blood on their bodies.

They’re the lucky ones; most are curled up on the floor, blood streaming, limbs blackening.

Children lie among dirty cardboard boxes in the hallways without food, water or medication.

Without electricity or functioning machines, medics have had to create their own solutions. Two men who had surgery on their legs have their limbs elevated by makeshift slings made out of water bottles.

Most Americans would scoff at the suggestion that we could ever see scenes like that in the United States, but just a few years ago most Venezuelans would have probably said the exact same thing.

For so long, watchmen all over America have been endlessly warning people to get prepared.

But at some point, time runs out.

In fact, down in Venezuela time has already run out.  Store shelves all over the country are empty, there are chronic shortages of basic supplies, some people are hunting dogs and cats for food, and there has been an almost total breakdown of public services.

I wish that I could say that these kinds of conditions are only going to be limited to Venezuela.  But I cannot say that.  Great suffering is going to eventually spread all over the world, and that is going to include our own nation.

I hope that you are using this short period of relative stability wisely, because it will be gone way too soon.

          The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

          Day after day they pour forth speech;
          night after night they reveal knowledge.

          They have no speech, they use no words;no sound is heard from them.
          Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.

          In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.

          It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, like a champion rejoicing to run his course.

          It rises at one end of the heavens
          and makes its circuit to the other;
          nothing is deprived of its warmth.

    “I wish that I could say that these kinds of conditions are only going to be limited to Venezuela.”
    It’s this type of mentality that I CANNOT stand. To hell with Venezuelans or any other citizens of the world – as long as ‘Muricaaaaaa is great, then it’s just fine….. RIGHT????
    Newsflash: We are ALL humans. We are all toxic to this planet. We are all equally worthless. You’re born and then you die. There is no God. The Venezuelans are doing what they need to do to survive, which is something that western civilization is wholly unprepared for… because they look to a fictional book and a nonexistent deity to give them purpose, enlightenment and meaning to their lives. How sad.
    Now I see why this blog gets trolled so often. It deserves it.

      you Sir/Maam are part of the problem why this world has gone so cold & I don’t mean in the Arctic. you apparently don’t have any compassion for your fellow member of Humanity but only for yourself. I know,, you said ‘Muricaaaaaa but it really is all about just you, isn’t it?

      oh, and BTW, there is a God who loves you but can’t embrace you when your Heart has grown so cold.

      • RTL89

        Are you insane????? I’m pretty sure that line I quoted from Michael is basically the definition of coldness. How does me defending another group of citizens make me “cold”? Am I being too politically incorrect for your liking?

        • William Lutz

          Exactly! If Venezuela is unhappy then “Murica” should be unhappy.

    • obot

      You’re an idiot. The Venezuelans brought it upon themselves. We have a choice

      • RTL89

        How ironic!!!! You don’t have a choice, you only have the illusion of choice. There’s a very big difference. The point is that Venezuela are doing what they have to do to survive, while we sit over here and let out a sigh of relief. We are really no different; being the world’s largest debtor nation is also nothing to be proud of

    • Robert W Bradford

      You are an unwashed animal.

    • William Lutz

      Yeah you’re absolutely right on the first one. That statement above sounds kind of selfish and thoughtless. If Venezuelans are dealing with the consequences of their past choices, we Americans and other nations have a moral obligation to do the same. People with a decent soul are not supposed to take comfort by their luck while witnessing others live in total misery.

      Don’t insult Christianity though.

      • RTL89

        I have absolutely nothing against Christianity if that’s what somebody believes in. What I don’t like is the extreme hypocrisy that some people demonstrate. Most people come here for financial/economic information. If Michael truly is Christian, why does he see fit to use this opportunity to spread as much fear and contempt as possible to his viewers? To me those are the telltale signs of a self-loathing, hateful man. Isn’t that the exact opposite of what the Christian religion is supposed to embody? This is where my frustration lies.
        I feel so unspeakably sad for the people of Venezuela. The U.S will criticize them for adopting socialist ideals, yet the U.S has fostered an insurmountable pile of debt that has destroyed the lives of future generations. Who are they to judge ANY other world citizens? So I do agree with you wholeheartedly about being held accountable for decisions, but I figured I’d clarify about my stance on religion.

          Well put, it is strange that we keep pointing fingers at other places when there is so much ruin within our own system. In the US, greed and plutocracy has bought us to this place of decay and poverty.

            This either a joke, or a frighteningly almost insane post. Might I suggest you go back and review your history books a little deeper? May I encourage you to actually read the Bible to verify where you got this from? And please cite chapter and verse where people “worship male parts.”

        • jim_robert

          There is a very clear distinction between discernment and judgment. Perhaps you might want to examine your assumptions a little further. In fact, in just a few verses where Christ tells us not to judge, He tells us not to cast our pearls before swine. This is a metaphor, of course, but still implies some kind of judging, though of a different kind. I think you are mistaken in your understanding.

          The key question is, in your own “judging” of Christianity, have you, yourself, ever read the primary literature (viz., the New Testament)? If not, I would submit your judgment is not entirely fair. Moreover, you are not, mon ami, converting to Christians – who are, ipso facto, fallible (we become Christians because we are sinners, not because we are so great and wonderful); rather, you are accepting the person of Christ.

          I might submit you read CS Lewis’ short book, “Mere Christianity,” or former atheist, lawyer and journalist Lee Strobel’s The Case for Christ. I am simply asking that you show the same intellectual rigor that you advocate above.

        • William Lutz

          It’s not that Michael is full of despair and hate. It’s just that people sometimes are not careful with what they say even if they mean well. Once in a while, they make personal claims that are offensive without realizing the implication of their words. So I’m sure Michael feels terrible for all humanity, not just the good ole US of A.

          As for the second paragraph, I totally agree that we have no business criticizing other nations, since we ourselves are so screwed up, probably even more so than some countries are. Murica is not quite socialist, but we are very lousy in terms of corruption, monetary policy, education, etc.

      You speak but all you do is hate and justify the chaos…Pretty sad.

      • RTL89

        I’m sorry, but it’s true. And this is coming from somebody who used to thoroughly believe in the paranormal and that there was an afterlife. But there isn’t. You’re organic matter. You’re born, you breed, and then you die. And while you’re living you pollute this beautiful earth for your own selfish gain (not YOU specifically, I’m just saying humans in general). That’s not hate – that’s just how it is. So based on that, we should be bonding together and loving one another – not cherry picking who we are going to hate just because a politician or Bible tells us to hate someone.

        • Daddyotis

          Your opinion. You’re entitled to it. However, it seems like you’re upset that others might have a different view than you (i.e.: belief in Jesus and the Word of the Bible). If this were just a difference of opinion, my guess is that you would not be writing so forcefully and at length in answer to others who are simply expressing their opinion.

          • RTL89

            I write so forcefully because I’ve noticed that ALL religion is a venue through which a LOT of hate is spewed. For instance, we are taught to demonize every Muslim we come across, but a large majority of them are peaceful people (the ones that are down to earth). But the same exact thing can be said about Christianity. This blog, however, is the epitome of hatred and contempt for other people – all for monetary gain. How can you not see wickedness at paly there?

          • Brian

            Sounds like somebody needs a hug.Don’t hate. Be like us Christians and be the hated.

          • Daddyotis

            “WE are taught to demonize every Muslim we come across”?? Who’s WE?? Christians? Where are you getting this information that “we” are doing this, and how exactly does this have anything to do with my relationship with Jesus and His Word? If you want to get the skinny on Christianity, I would suggest reading the Bible, and not depend on the hateful propaganda the leftist MSM has been force-feeding you for your whole life.

            To me you simply seem like an angry person, and you’re choosing to take out your anger on others’ belief systems to make yourself feel better. I have been reading Michael’s blog for years now, and have yet to find that it is “the epitome of hatred and contempt for other people”.

            Try to climb out of your anger and arrogance. It will only destroy you.

          • RTL89

            Nobody needs religion to be a good person. You’re either inherently good or not. And I know that I’m a good person. Oftentimes what I’ve found is that people – who are actually pretty hateful, racist and discriminatory – use religion as something to hide behind. Jesus said “let he without sin be the first to cast a stone” at a beggar. Well I see many “Christians” casting quite a few stones at people, while using their “religion” to absolve themselves from their own wrongdoing. You don’t see a problem with that????? I see sheer weakness, spinelessness and cowardice.. And that’s not the MSM telling me that – that is just something I see and hear with my own eyes and ears.

            Christianity is a slave religion. Amongst many other delusions, it promotes a dangerous child-like belief that justice will be served *after* we die. The evil-doers in charge get away with horrific crimes and the deluded console themselves believing that the criminal gangster elite will “burn in hell” and the suffering of the decent people will likewise be rewarded in heaven. What a scam!

            We’re all born sinners and we need regeneration. This is something that is done to the sinful sinner by God. Sinners need to be born again.

I wish Chicago was in it’s own district, as most of the money allocated goes there and still they along w/ the rest of us are hurting badly. Where does all this money go?? A certain lot are getting fat for sure. Mob run town. I say they can pay their own way, and the rest of the us in the state can pay ours. To the ones that wish to get away from the violence of Chicago, particularly the south side , I hope they can find an exit soon. Sad and unreal.

          The looters and moochers will sooner or later going to run out of the people´s money,
          instead of leaving power and fix the growing mess, they are just going to double-down.
          Obama or Hillary would eagerly abolish the republic by executive decrees and use tanks against the protesters (just like in 1989 Beijing).
          Then they would use the welfare leeches, numerous gangs as the infantry troops to impose their police state.

          A major problem is that running a state by pure terror will have similar effect to the German occupation of Poland and the Soviet-Union, then Germany at least had Germany to fall back on.
          Populations crushed by poverty and terror won´t be able to sustain the Federal police state.
          Their hope is to quickly overrune and destroy armed resistance with superior firepower, to crush armed rebellion before it becomes a serious problem.

          • mtntrek3

            Too far left or right is a problem on the political scene. Overall regardless of political affiliation …… the elite will one day over run the rest of us.

        Trump Trickery:

        Trump is now co-opted by the establishment. Was it not strange how Trump’s rivals gave up easily? He’s the elite’s choice and will do their bidding. Trump will sell out to the Chinese and send more jobs overseas. I reckon he won’t even build the wall he’s been harping about.

  • elmcqueen3

    This is what happens when you have a rabble rousing community organizer who favors lawlessness over law abiding citizens…It’s a little bit too late to change that which Obama and his minions have created with their statements like “the Cambridge cops acted stupidly”…Or “If I had a son” like Travon Martin who would be a belligerent thug…or Black Lives matter because of despicable and racist cops…Despite his gift of speech this President is the most do nothing “politically correct” President this country has ever had or ever seen…Hopefully we will not have another of his kind…Hence gangland Chicago has exploded no thank to Raul Emanuel who is about as incompetent as his mentor Barack Obama.

    • F Walker2016

      maybe learn some history before the current administration; maybe mental health assistance as well

      • elmcqueen3

        Too late for all of that…this administration has been a dismal failure…it has no respect for our US Constitution no does it uphold the laws of this land as set forth by the same Constitution…
        Obama has shown he is a lawless President and the Republicans have turned tail not daring to stand up to this President because of the color of his skin..not wanting black voters and liberal knuckle heads blaming Republican’s as being “racist”…which they have been doing any way as cowardly Republicans in turn have buried their heads in the sand…Hence the Republicans have been “Damned if they do and damned if they don’t”…from the “get go”.

            Closing the border won’t solve the problem. The economic downturns will recur time after time under the current system. We need to be more imaginative in our approach. I propose we need a new system, whereby the working class own the means of production through the formation of cooperative businesses. It can work. There are a few of these worker co-ops sprinkled around North America and Europe and they are successful. You won’t see it covered by mainstream media of course. The current owners of the country don’t want us to know about them. Check it out for yourselves. It works. We have to stop hoping for a Messiah to come and save us. We have to save ourselves.

  • Chicago and Detroit aren’t controlled by the Left; they are controlled by what’s left after the economic infrastructure and tax base had been gutted. In short, it’s a preview for the rest of country. Instead of using those cities as opportunities to demonstrate that they can be turned around with an influx jobs that provide a living wage as well as access to capital to spur small business growth, many people would rather blame it on the so-called Left and/or black inferiority. I’m cool with that, but your day is coming. I can’t wait to see how the rest of you react when it’s your turn.

  • K

    All part of the plan. First it was Detroit, now Chicago. How many years, was the drumbeat about crime in Detroit? It got so bad the city used taxpayer money, to tear down old buildings, and old houses. Some of that quite costly, due to asbestos. The newly vacant land, bought up by investors, on the cheap. Example a small vacant lot bought for 1,200 dollars in 2006. Is on the market right now. For 150,000 dollars. In a rebounding part of the city. Tear down the mess, at the public expense. While the private investors, make all the profit. Chicago, is just the next target. I can even predict the next target after Chicago. There has been a quite drumbeat, in a limited number of publications. That there is a more crime ridden, violent place than Chicago. That when you adjust for the population differences, a place that is far worse. After Chicago, Memphis.

  • Patriot Alice

    Even if Mr. Trump couldn’t bring jobs back tariffs are a good idea because: The profit margins are so much greater 70+% because of very cheap labor and no regulations since the companies moved. If the tariffs increased 30%, it would only cut into the 70+% margins leaving 40+%, prices will NOT increase because if companies could get away with higher prices they would have increased them. The bailed out Wall Street billionaires Stock holders would be effected negatively, Sorry Wall Street, the rest of us didn’t get bailed out. That is why Wall Street loves Clinton. Anyway, we win either way, 30% tariffs or jobs returned. We have nothing to lose now.

My best uncle was gay and the most compassionate and fun loving man i knew of. I still love the man ( died of aids). I hate the thoughts of possibly not seeing him in eternity. But, it’s not my call, nor is it yours. But that is why we have personal freewill.

    I happen to like dystopian novels for my relaxing reading. Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? Maybe someone could tell me if the following idea has been used for a novel. A police officer on the beat in Chicago, in a relatively safe neighborhood, is witnessing the slow demise of the city around him in a financial breakdown of first Chicago and then the rest of the American society. Maybe a former urban cop with some writing experience should write it. I would read it.

    Obama chose the perfect city for his presidential library to frame his illegal legacy as president of the united states. Chicago is everything Obama has stood for since becoming president, lie, cheat, steal, kill, destroy, and do it all under the protection of an organized criminal government that just looks the other way. –

    You picked an appropriate city Barry.

    Race of Father – “African”
    Race of Mother – “Caucasian”

    Pick the racial classifications that were not being used anywhere in America for healthcare services and Birth Certificates in 1961. If you chose both, you are correct.

    The correct racial designations for 1961 are:

    Race of Father – “Negro”
    Race of Mother – “White”

    This is what happens when people let hate run their lives.
    Not one thought goes into improving life, only destroying it.

  • Preacher62

    If something doesn’t change, if we don’t get jobs for these kids, if we don’t change the economic situation, I’m worried that we could be looking at a blood bath,” said the Rev. Corey Brooks, Therein lies the problem. Professed men of God espousing economic and political goals as the solution rather than the Gospel. Turning from God brings abandonment from God and only returning to him can bring blessing. Fixing the economy and replacing the President will not bridge the gap between man and God. Only Jesus Christ can do that.

      people with jobs usually aren’t killing other people.

      • Preacher62

        Its a heart condition not an economic one. Only God can give one the desire to turn from violence and depravity. Most have no desire to part with their sin so they choose to continue in it by rejecting the truth that could set them free.

      • “V”

        sodomy is a form of killing people….contract a host of diseases by such activity.

    • walcon

      So if people are out of work, that is the signal to kill others?
      I’ve been out of work before, but the last thing on my mind was that meant I was suppose to start shooting people. Someone who would kill another human will do it anyway because they are scum. Good grief- start putting the blame on the person not the situations!
      YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR ACTIONS- NO ONE ELSE!

      • Preacher62

        I think that is what I just said. If you read the article The REV, was the one that said giving them jobs would stop the killing. Only a change of heart found in a relationship with Christ will stem the tide of evil that is overtaking this country.

    Mostly blacks is my guess !

  • Peter Howes

    The author misses the point; the crisis is not due to illegal immigrants (the old race card used by the political right). It is wealth distribution and usury by bankers and the one percent elite that is to blane. In short capitalism. But as the political right works for the one prcent and advocates the Corporate State as a solution (aka Hitler and Mussolini) they never mention the class orientated Marxist solution. Couple this with the political police’s annihilation of the Marxist radical groups in the 1970s/80s (eg 1000 members of the original Black Panther’s murdered and many SDS members also/Kent State, Martin Luthur King, Malcolm X etc). There is nothing to lead the masses away from a fascist solution in the US. In fact the gangster gangs will be the future Brown and Black Shirts as per the 1930s in Europe. History repeats itself if not idelogically understood and the great socialist leaders of yesteryear have been demonized by liberalism and other propaganda mechanisms of the deep state establishment.

      Nonetheless, there is nothing that can stop lawlessness like strict enforcement of the laws. They did it in New York City, and it can be done in Chicago. Prosperity is not possible in the absence of order.

  • Jodie Lynn Gaeta

    Illinois is a poorly run state, and Governor Rauner is worthless.

  • Defiant

    Chicago is reaping what they’ve sown. When it’s basically illegal for police to enforce the law, the criminals take over. That’s why they’ve turned the city into a shooting gallery. Remember: Chicago has just about the toughest anti-gun laws in the nation. It’s not the guns. It’s the scum.

  • norinco

    IF OBOZO built a city….wait he and his ILK did…they transformed Chicago into what it is today….a LIBERAL PARADISE .

  • Does anyone have a figure on the cost for all the services required for the 75 shot in Chicago this weekend? When you add in rehab, life long and or extended care for disabilities, ambulances, surgery, nursing, hospital stays dialysis for 3 for life, two on colostomy bags for life, one prosthetic hand. 6 wheel chairs, one power chair for paralyzed 16 year old, x-ray, MRI etc etc. Please feel free to correct me and tell when where I’m wrong. Most likely you can’t. The point is, Chicago is costing the US taxpayers Billions per year in medical bills cause I’m gonna guess the number of these people with a PPO Aetena card is somewhere around zero. Yes, loss of life too, but when is someone going to let us know what it costs to save all these precious lives.

      Nothing compared to the US military base rents in Germany.

      • Wow, thanks for the relevance to the topic. I also heard Dunkin Donuts coffee was on sale this week. Whole bean only.

        • Gay Veteran

          those costs are a drop in the bucket compared to the Pentagon

          • “V”

            or to a sodomite

    • Beth Mc Bride

      cannot cite the article but there was an article in the newspaper which told about military veterans that receive trauma training at Advocate Christ Hospital and they treat people brought in by ambulance and by helicopter, the description I make for people in other parts of the country is that the injuries are part of life to some of these south side people and it is pathetic

  • df NJ

    Guns don’t kill people, bullets do. Just regulate the distribution of bullets. That should put a big damper on gun crimes but still allow patriots to defend themselves from the tyranny of government.

    • Bill G Wilminton NC

      Ridiculous…………..

    This is awesome. Shooting people is good population control.

  • Greboada

    You don’t deserve or not deserve a second chance: you just get it or you don’t. Venezuela had a lot of money entering the country for a decade because of the oil, so there was no lack of chances for that country. Maybe you don’t know, but a decade ago, people in Venezuela had a very high living standard and there was money flowing.

    And don’t get me wrong: you’re gonna have your collapse. US is going to hell, and nobody is gonna help you when that happens. So no double standard… Venezuela is not special. But I’m afraid neither are you, and you will discover it the hard way the decades to come.

    this is what happens with you have a zionistjew who is mayor

    Enjoy that cultural enrichment, liberal utopia

  • “V”

    In order to properly police this city one must have an aggressive approach, which is not possible in todays anti-police climate. Yes, there are / were some cases of brutality, but without the ability to utilize force to overcome resistance the bad guys will rule the streets. As you see in Chicago, Detroit and other cities across America. The Black Lives Matter movement combined with the Obama run Justice Department has created an environment where police are far less hands on. Look at interviews with many of the Baltimore city officers, many admit they look the other way rather than risk confrontation. Yes, it has gotten that bad. I have a concealed weapons permit, I know the law, I do not look for trouble. But I am ready able and willing to do what must be done to protect myself and family. A six month tour of duty in Mogadishu taught me much in the matters of the use of deadly force.

    • Gay Veteran

      the police are just a gang in blue.

        A “Gang” that will risk it’s own lives to save yours….

    Isn’t there another option besides Trump and Hildebeest?
    Ah yes, there is. That Sanders guy. Colonel Sanders.

  • abinico

    Oh, I see, so it’s the fault of the radical left – the fact that the free market radical rights’ export of good jobs to low cost labor areas had nothing to do with it.

  • walcon

    We just love to blame our bad deeds on something else. None of those people “Chose” to kill another- it was the circumstance that did it. See how stupid that sounds?

  • Shirley Pressley

    Im ashame of our country a bunch of spoiled racist biggots

    Is there too much time left? ( for Obama to finish destroying our country ? )

    And the Democrats want to take away our guns?

  • Bob332

    Too bad the gangs etc haven’t descended on Ram “Dead Fish” Emmanuel’s house yet! ALL the cities controlled by DemomRAT’s are reaping what they have sowed.

  • JustanOguy

    Lol… like Chicago just recently became corrupt. It’s been corrupt and riddled with gang violence since the 1920’s!! Street Gangs have been prominent in Chicago since the 70’s!

    Venezuela — LOL. The country has been poor for decades.. There is more money in Chicago than the entire country of Venezuela.

  • GSOB

    …”Now that Trump has the Republican slot we have a liberal running on the left and on the right.”…..

    Excellent comment.

    Now we have Trump the bully or Hillary the socialist village nanny….

    take your poison…..

    • Denise

      This whole Trump thing was strategically planned by the left to save them from facing treason charges. They absolutely needed to run both parties and they have succeeded.

  • RTL89

    EXACTLY. And this is the double standard with Christianity and why I have such a problem with the religion. Jesus taught people not to cast stones at others UNLESS they have sins of their own (so that description fits nobody sine everybody makes mistakes). However, a lot of Christians will happily ignore that…. and they will cats contempt and hatred towards anybody that isn’t white or heterosexual. And if you call them out on it, they just recite another bible quote and call you blasphemous. Lots of disgusting people here.

  • daniel reich

    This is what happens when the owners of a countrie’s means of production ships all production out of said country. What’s more, many remaining jobs have been systematically eliminated by technology. The problem is not with the people who are literally without means of self support. People need jobs if they are to have dignity. This article is absolutely heinous. I would like to compel the author to provide proof of the mere existence of a radical left in this country. Where are they? I’d like to hear from them!

  • daniel reich

    Liberals on both sides? Really. What the hell do you call liberal? What is your definition of that term? How are we going to get it done if we’re not speaking the same language? We don’t have any liberals anymore. They have gone extinct. Liberal= generous. Shipping our jobs out of the country isn’t generous.

    • Denise

      Liberals talk out of both sids of their mouths. Take the transgender issue, Trump’s first GUT response was to support it! He backtracks when he sees that it is unpopular with conservatives. However, his initial reactions give a clear window into the real Donald Trump.
      Trump is already calling the “WALL” a “SUGGESTION, ” and has softened on other issues.
      These are the views and tactics of the Progressive left and should send up red flags to any true conservative. Remember Trumps very liberal history!

  • amongoose

    It’s a cultural problem, a thug rap culture.

  • Beth Mc Bride

    My message to Chicago gang members is that you repent and follow Jesus Christ while there is time to repent. You have brought much grief to Chicago and if you repent the Lord will forgive you. If you do not repent of the murders that you have ordered you will face God’s judgement. I post this with my name and with love. God loves you and he forgave the man who died next to him at calvary so he can forgive you too.

  • lostinthevalley

    It spreads out from Chicago. I lived in a small midwestern town that is about 3- 1/2 hrs. from Chicago. For several years the bleeding heart liberal elites brought what locals called “the Chicago element” to town so that they would have access to benefits, and the local Democrat govt could guarantee jobs for police, jailers, social workers, and the court system–the so-called “welfare industrial complex”. About 90% of the violent crimes and robberies are committed by this “element”. They are a scary lot that hangs around downtown, panhandling and often harassing the locals.
